Operating the Valley’s only Emergency Children’s Shelter for children birth to 8.


Children are admitted due to neglect, abandonment, abuse and parental incarceration. Children are placed by the Department of Child Safety (DCS) or by families when parents are unable to care for their children.

All children in our shelter receive health and dental care, social, behavioral and educational support.

When our foster children came to us, we received a photo album of their life at the Shelter. It’s a treasure for our family to have pictures of when they were younger. We are blessed these kids had such good care and a start to long-term healing from Child Crisis Arizona.
